Once you go coaster, you never go back. That’s right, I take pride in being that hostess who’s always lifting up sweaty glasses & sneakily sliding coasters underneath, leaving guests wondering… Was that always there? That said, you can imagine the tiny yelp! I let out when I came across these DIY darlings on Design* Sponge. Though they were originally featured as Pennsylvanian symbols of good luck during the harvest & holiday seasons, I would have no qualms about keeping these coasters out all year long. For all our crafty friends out there, follow the jump for templates & DIY instructions…
Hex Symbol Coasters
- Pre-cut wooden coasters like these
- 4 paint colors & white paint
- clear fast-drying waterproof sealant
- carbon paper
- pencil & ballpoint pen
Cut out paper design circles from template & carbon paper circles in the same size. Tape both circles onto the wood, with carbon paper facing the wood & the design facing up.
Use a ballpoint pen to trace the design. After the design is lightly lined, paint all shapes in with a thin layer of white paint.
Paint in shapes according to your paint-by-number guides. Seal with quick drying clear sealant.
